Meet The Team

Deborah Rush
Medical Director

I am a wellness oriented provider; I do not view my clients as ill but rather as unique. I believe in the recovery model rather than the medical model; this focuses on being the best you can be rather than focusing on a "cure" for illness. I believe in the least amount of medication, for the shortest amount of time to maintain the highest quality of life. The patient is at the center of their plan and treatment must be collaborative between patent and provider. I am here to make a difference.


Cathy is a clinician and Clinical Director  at Renewed Hope Counseling and Wellness with 20 years of clinical experience working in the community.  She received both  her Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in  Social Work from Boise State University (Go Broncos!).  Her specialized training as an MSW gives her the clinical expertise to work across the lifespan with adults, children and their families experiencing a variety of mental health, developmental, and transitional issues. Cathy believes in the importance of collaborating with clients to help empower them to achieve their goals, and is passionate about the power therapy can provide to improve the lives of others.

She utilizes a variety of clinical perspectives that are tailored to each client’s individual needs.  Some of the frameworks that are frequently used include: EMDR, EFT Tapping, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness Based practice.

Working closely with patients and their mental health is very satisfying to me. I try my best to be there for my patients with compassion and really listen to their needs. Renewed Hope is like my second home, we are all family here. I am currently working to become a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant to further develop my knowledge and skills.
